Abstract : Indonesia ranks 3rd in the world among countries with high leptospirosis death rate. The death rate in the country ranges between 16.45% and 56% in individuals of at least 50 years. Central Java had 164 cases with 30 deaths (Case Fatality Rate 18.29%) in 2016. Semarang had total of 56 cases with the death of 8 people recorded in 2015 (Case Fatality Rate: 14.3%). The objective of this study was to analyze the most dominant risk factor related to Leptospirosis in Semarang City. The results of the bivariate analysis showed the significance value (p-value) of knowledge = 0.001; home physical environment = 0.001; behavior = 0.023. Multivariate analysis obtained knowledge (p = 0.04; Odd Ratio = 6.376; 95% Confident Interval = 1.092-37.210), home physical environment (p = 0.012; Odd Ratio = 6.023; 95% Confident Interval = 1.475-24.532) and behavior (p = 0.254; Odd Ratio = 2,553; 95% Confident Interval = 0.509- 12,797). The most dominant risk factor related to Leptospirosis is knowledge.

Abstract : The symmetry and shape of the alar base has a major role in structuring normal appearance of the nose. The current surgical approaches aim to create a proper balance in alar base leading the patients’ high satisfaction aesthetically and functionally. Thus, careful evaluation of preoperative alar base deformities and a detailed plan for correction of these deformities during surgery will lead to optimal longterm results and complete patient satisfaction. The present study aimed to determine the common alar base disharmonies in patients who were candidates for rhinoplasty. This cross-sectional study was performed on 705 consecutive patients who were candidates for rhinoplasty surgery with the aim of primary rhinoplasty. Pre-rhinoplasty photographs of patients were evaluated in frontal, bilateral and basal views, and sizes, shapes, dimensions, as well as deformities of alar base were evaluated. The mean of nasal base width was also 33.36±2.68mm. Totally, 56.2% of participants had the apparent deviation of the nose. With regard to horizontal alar base deformity, 35.9% of cases had normal condition, while general enlargement, thick alar wall, alar flaring, nasal sill, and broad alar base conditions were revealed in 16.74%, 13.62%, 16.31%, 8.23%, and 9.22% respectively. Assessment with regard to vertical alar base malposition showed normal condition in 47.0%, unilaterally cephalad condition in 6.67%, bilaterally cephalad condition in 20.14%, unilaterally caudal condition in 3.55% and bilaterally caudal condition in 22.55%. The most common anomaly of alar-columellar relationship was related to hanging ala followed by hanging ala retracted columella. There was no difference in types of unilaterally vertical alar base malposition between the two groups with and without the apparent deviation of the nose. Because a significant number of our population had vertical alar base malposition and/or horizontal alar base deformities, more attention should be made to different types of alar base disharmonies for initial planning of rhinoplasty.

Abstract : Nasal septal perforation is a defect in any portion of the cartilaginous or bony septum in which no overlying mucoperichondrium present. Multiple causes can lead to septonasal perforation. Nowadays with increasing desire to septorhinoplasty, the affected cases of septal perforation have been increased. The present study aimed to describe our experience on surgical repairing nasal septal perforation by alloderm grafting procedure. Seven patients suffering nasal septal perforation were enrolled in this case series study and underwent alloderm insertion in close or open septoplasty approach. The patients were divided based on the perforation size to less and more than one centimeter. Of Seven patients followed-up, two patients with perforation sized less than 1cm cured completely and there were no mucopericonderial closure in larger defects. In two patients who underwent revision rhinoplasty, the overall outcome was satisfactory after improvement of ptosis and dorsum without improvement in septal perforation. Alloderm is an alternative option in repairing nasal septal perforations sized less than one centimeter, but it may not be applicable for larger deformities.

Abstract : Intrauterine transfusion (IUT) is considered to be the most successful relief of fetal anemia resulting from Hemolytic Disease of Fetus and New-born (HDFN). This study aims to determine the frequencies of RBC alloantibodies that might cause fetal hemolysis and evaluate the perinatal outcome of IUTs in Palestine. We conducted a retrospective-cohort study of pregnant women who requited IUT procedure at Al-Makassed Hospital in East Jerusalem. We reviewed Blood-Bank records between 2003 and 2013. Data were collected on all RBC-alloimmunized pregnancies requiring IUTs including the age of pregnant women, blood typing, antibody identification, and antibody titers. Also, we collected clinical data from the patients' files about the obstetric history and current pregnancy. A total of 222 IUTs were performed during the study period in 65 alloimmunized pregnancies. Of all cases, 95.4% were associated with anti-D, 36.9 % with anti-C, and 10.8% with anti-E. Other non-Rh antibodies included mainly Kell, Kidd (10.8%), Luth and Lewis. The median number of transfusions needed per pregnancy was 3. The survival rate in the study was 90% and 27.3% of cases were hydropic; survival rate was significantly higher for fetuses without hydropic fetalis. IUT can improve perinatal outcome in alloimmunized pregnancies. In Palestine, policies should be drawn to introduce this procedure to more Palestinian Hospitals to increase its accessibility to the patients. In addition, secondary prevention of anti-D associated sensitization by rhesus immune globulin to reduce the incidence of HDFN should be more efficaciously implemented.

Abstract : Indonesian Demographic Health Survey data the use of traditional family planning (FP) methods continues to increase in Indonesia, in 2017 married women aged 15-49 years using a FP method reached 64%, which is an increase from 2013 of 59.7%, while those using non modern FP methods in 2013 were only 0.4% and increased to 6% in 2017. This research was used quantitative research with analytical research design using cross sectional approach. The design of this study was used to determine the reinforcing factor of non modern contraceptive use in the city of Yogyakarta. This research has been carried out in three areas of the city of Yogyakarta, namely the Districts of Mergangsan, Gondokusuman, and Mantrijeron in July 2019. There is a correlation between health care support and non modern contraceptive use, the use of male contraception (spouse contraceptive use) is statistically significant to the use of traditional contraception, respondents whose husbands male contraception have 0.04 times the opportunity to use traditional contraception compared to respondents whose husband do not uses contraception for men. The factors that reinforce couples in the child hearing age to use non modern contraceptive are: use of male (husband) contraceptive methods and support from health workers.
